Mambo - dance number one on heat and concentration of energy. The alloy of a swing and the Cuban music has created a delightful rhythm which has turned to special dance. It is interesting, that the name mambo attribute to the well-known sorcerers vudu, able to immerse the person in a hypnotic trance. Was considered, that they have managed to enclose in mambo part of the magic.

Anyway, but dance mambo has been condemned by Catholic church in a number of the Latin American countries or forbidden by authorities in others. But, having turned to a forbidden fruit, мамбо every day involved the even greater number of admirers.

Originally she was executed as a point with delay at the end of rate, i.e. on 4 impact in beat 4/4. Some musicians used a rhythm 2/4, slowing down accordingly 2 and 4 impact.

Changed version "mambo" (initial dance has been strongly simplified because of a plenty of acrobatic elements) has been submitted to public in dancing studios, resort hotels, in night clubs of New York and Miami. The success was full! Dancers мамбо began to name gently "Mambonicks". The general hobby мамбо did not last for a long time and today мамбо is very much limited and executed only by skilled dancers. Teachers came to the general opinion, that it - one of the most difficult dances, on technics and musicality.
